Guys - Thanks for the input. I periodically carry a large Lance camper, and unlike travel trailers and 5vrs, all the weight is on the truck. So in addition to weight carrying capacity, I actually like a stiff front spring to help with stability, sway, and front to back oscillation. That's why I went to the Ford 7k lb coils. Was a huge improvement over my OEM 5,200 lb coils which would allow the truck to bottom-out turning into my suburban driveway.
I like the idea of the 1/4 coil shims if needed in the future, to compensate for the trucks being heavier on the left, which I refer to as the "Super Duty lean".
I do appreciate the experiences and expertise that folks bring to this forum. Really helps us all learn.
